2kiters                INSIDE      Kites On Ice 2003


"Kites of Our Childhood" and our Hi-Flier replica kites fit together like a hand and a glove. Several collections of the old paper kites plus 7 of our replicas were hung in the foyer of the Terrace. Old advertising kites were on display in one of the meeting rooms along with the historical cloth kites from the French Air and Space Museum which Gerard Clement brought from Paris. Gerard also brought an incredible photo display. Scott Skinner brought a wonderful grouping of old post cards and stamps depicting kites. Kay Buesing (World Kite Museum), Charlie Sotich, Craig Wilson, Richard and Marti Dermer put parts of their collections on display. The Madison Library brought over 60 children's kite books for the public to view and read. Add in the other booths and kite displays, such as Craig's Aerial Photo pictures, and you have an absolutely tremendous indoor display.
